Surviving & Thriving: AIDS, Politics, and Culture
A man who shoots up can be very giving, he can give you and your baby AIDS, 1980s
In the early 1990s, the National Institute on Drug Abuse called on women to seek treatment to protect their children, including those yet to be born, from AIDS. This poster features a pregnant African American woman whose male partner uses intravenous drugs. The accompanying text warned, “Babies with AIDS are born to die,” and suggested women get tested for HIV before becoming pregnant and use condoms to protect themselves.
